Victim Of Love

CD (Item 799095) Verve/Charly (UK), 1990 — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD

✈

A seminal album from Dee Dee Bridgewater – a set that carries forward some of the soul styles she had at the start of the 80s, but one that also points the way towards her return to jazz in the 90s as well! The production is fairly electric – lots of keyboards and guitars, and mostly beats in the rhythms – and most tunes are laidback, pushing Dee Dee into the kind of sophistic-soul/jazz diva territory shared by contemporaries like Phyllis Hyman or Marlena Shaw at the same point in their careers. Titles include "Till The Next Somewhere" – a duet with Ray Charles – plus "Wall Of Love", "Love Takes Chances", "Sunset & Blue", "Can't We Try Love Again", "Heartache Caravan", and "I Go My Way".  © 1996-2021, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible.

When you purchase a Used CD you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks, the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves), and the booklet to be in good shape. Used CDs may show some signs of use but if there are significant details or defects we will list them underneath the item — just like we do with LPs — so look there for notes on cutout marks, stickers, promo stamps or other details.

All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

Mitzi Gaynor

Mitzi
Verve (Japan), 1958. Used
The debut vocal album from Mitzi Gaynor – a talent best known at the time for her work in the field of dance, but who comes across pretty nicely on this Verve set! Backings are by Pete King, who gives the record a lightly swinging quality that almost recalls some of Mitzi's more evocative ... CD

Verve (Japan), Early 60s. Used
Quite a popular live album from Ella – recorded in Berlin at the height of the cold war years – featuring a famous recording of "Mack The Knife" that almost blew away Bobby Darin's hit with the cut! The album's nicely free of some of the stodginess of some of Ella's Songbook ... CD

Ella Fitzgerald/Count Basie/Joe Williams

One O'Clock Jump (Japanese paper sleeve edition)
Verve (Japan), 1957. Used
Ella Fitzgerald joins the unbeatable late 50s team of Count Basie and Joe Williams – singing a bit of duets with Joe, and also letting him take the lead on his own! Players include Joe Newman and Thad Jones on trumpets, Frank Foster and Frank Wess on tenors, Freddie Greene on guitar, and ... CD

Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong

Ella & Louis Again
Verve, Late 50s. Used
A set that's maybe even nicer than the Ella & Louis work together on Porgy & Bess – given that backing is by the trio of Oscar Peterson, which gives the whole thing a nicely understated charm – at a level that really lets the charms of the duo shine through! CD
Verve (Japan), 1963. Used
A later entry in Ella's Songbook series for Verve – but a great one too, thanks to some strong arrangements from Nelson Riddle! Riddle's working here at a level that he brought to his earlier sessions with Frank Sinatra – one that colors in the tunes with just the right amount of ... CD

Verve, Late 50s. Used
An excellent album of vocals by the great Joe Williams! Joe's always been a fine singer, but with Basie, he really gets the backing he needs to do his work the best. And although this album isn't as authenico as it might be, it still comes from a time when Verve really knew how to handle singers ... CD

Frank D'Rone

After The Ball
Verve, 1960. Used
One of the few albums ever cut by singer Frank D'Rone – an excellent vocalist in the Pal Joey mode! Frank hailed from Chicago, and was a second (or third) tier singer – a bargain basement Sinatra, with a rougher style that actually has a great edge, and which recalls the tougher days ... CD

Jeanne Lee

Natural Affinities
Owl (France), 2003. Used
A tremendous album from Jeanne Lee – easily one of her best recordings ever! By the time of this 1992 session, Lee had a reputation for a few decades worth of groundbreaking, often avant garde jazz vocalizations – sometimes good, sometimes a bit too scatter-shot to really hold our ... CD
